Video Playback on PC

October 7, 2014 - 7:31am #4

I am using Video Playback in my project with Android and it is working perfectly so far.


My problem is that my project will have to run on PC too (standalone) with a webcam. So far, I am not able to make it works on Windows 7 PC. I didn't found any documentations or informations about it so I decided to post for help here. Anyone else have the same problem and found a way to solve it?


For my tests, I am currently using the Sample Video Playback scene from Vuforia in a fresh project.

Vuforia cannot run standalone (exe) on PC, it only supports Android and iOS, at this time.

This is mentioned in the Getting Started guide too.

In Unity you can use the webcam, but only for Play Mode (to test the App), but you can't deploy the App as a standalone executable on PC.

In addition, the videoplayback will only play videos on texture only when running on device, as this sample feature is not supported in playmode.

There are some other plugins you might want to take a look at for this functionality.

For example: "Mobile Movie Texture" - I think it costs a few dollars.

It is able to play in Playmode. Additionally it has an Chroma-Key-Shader integrated and can use an alpha-split video  (in order to use semi-transparency)

Best Regards
